Easiest way is you have an impact gun to get the nut of the top the shocker,
or i cant remember if its a torx or an allen key to hold the shocker whilst slackening the nut but if its rusty this is unlikely to work.

last time i done it i didnt have an impact gun and it was too rusted up for me to hold with an allen key so as i was renewing the shocker any i had to grind 2 flat spots on the side of the ram and hold it with a stilson whilst slackening the nut with a 6 point socket...not the most professional way of doing it but it got it done ..
dont try this unless your fitting a new shocker obviously

As above I was changing my shocks so just cut through rod with grinder. Second option could be to split top nut to remove and then fit new nuts

Thumbs up Thanks Terry

Terry....
Yes it looks a square top end of the rod secured with standard hex nut at the top.
Did put in a vice but the fecker just kept spinning still!
It concerned me as well that I might shatter it (being so cold) so only did it as tight as I thought was enough.

Wow... hearing you ground the shaft sounds like you were definitely not getting beaten!

Safe on the jack overnight for now and will stay there till the moring after I take a trip to local tyre fitter AM as my first option tomorrow in removing it. Thankfully I've got the Mrs car to hand for just such eventuality.

Thanks for your reply - I wasn't really expecting a reply being a Saturday TBH.
Much appreciated

Thumbs up Cheers Windy

Windy,
I understand... as both you and Terry have both suggested - its a git to remove!

Thanks again for your reply...honestly did not expect anything until the morning.

Cheers Tony

To be clear I am changing the shocks but not top mount or spring... the shock was old and needed replacing - MOT failed it. So if I cant get it done locally at tyre place - out comes the grinder!

Reading the Haynes manual and it shows two mounting bolts in the underside of the top mount and a lower bolt to be removed so unless your car is different I cannot understand where you are having the problem. Plus your first entry states it is all out and off the car!?

SOme shocks come with a bare piston and so the mounts need to be reused from the old ones...
